Hi, few days ago I moved my HSC90 into the basement and today I
changed the power-plug to a 4-prong household kind, plugged it
in and it actually powered up. I could even boot it from the
RX33 disk that had been sitting for years on a scrap yard. All
good news. But seems like I have a serious error in the CI
"host adapter" and the HSC User Manual doesn't say anything
about it. the fails DIT with status 111. SHOW ALL says that was not detected. The three boards show the follwing lights:

R    |

   R R

1 2 3

where "R" marks a red LED and | marks a row of yellow LEDs. Notably
the green LEDs underneath the red ones don't come on whereas they do
come on on all the SI interfaces.

Knowing that the CI is finnicky with unterminated ports I did
connect all four to the star coupler. But it didn't change the
error. Are my cards broken? I hope there's some other oversight
that can be uncovered with the deciphering of the status 111.
